The Sexually Perverse Stylings of Bill O'Reilly

This post, written by Taylor Marsh, originally appeared on Taylor

When I first saw the O'Reilly segment highlighted by Keith Olbermann tonight I thought it was quite odd. As someone who has, let's just say, been involved with a few pageants in my time, I could not imagine a major cable network anchor going down this line of questioning with me back in the day. No one would ever have the bad taste to take a young woman down this perverse erotic road, let alone do it on tv.

However, when you think of Bill-O's falafel fetish, well, loofah, whatever, it starts to make sense. It doesn't make it any less creepy.
